September Open Day

Sunday September 24th saw our amazing open day here at The Pumping House. Emails began flooding in on Monday from both booked and new brides to tell us how amazing they thought our beautiful venue looked, so if you missed out we though we would share the day!


The Pumping house is such a unique venue that speaks for itself with quirky styling and its original features, most of our couples have fallen for us just based on this. But we all like to get dressed up once in a while and do what we love most and that’s throw a wedding!

When the date was set in our diary we knew who we needed to call; Team Pumping House don’t have recommended suppliers as such we much prefer to get to know individuals and their teams to go on and recommend them to our couples. Only once we ourselves have a built up a good relationship and class them as friends we recommend, this list is growing quite quick 😉

So here they are, with the help of our friends, our open day in pictures… ENJOY!

Save the date event hire and styling are always first choice when it comes to transforming our smazing spaces, they know our venue inside out, well they should really as they have a hidden gem of a showroom in our basement which is just a treasure trove of all things wedding. If you didn’t get the chance to pop down on the open day get in touch for a private appointment, these ladies are just fantastic they can help with as much or as little as you need and will always go that extra mile!



Keeping the Engine Hall simple and elegant with touches of blush and coppers for the table scapes, complimenting with the stunning blooms in raspberries and pinks, Dan from Peonies and Plumes did us proud with stunning creations on our tables, cake, and Ollerton Room.








Floral hoops are a huge trend going into 2018, what better way to use them than in our ceremony room as a backdrop for all your guests to adore whilst you say your vows in this stunning room which overlooks our beautiful woodland.


Not forgetting this amazing bouquet! It was certainly a hit with many of you brides, we saw you all having a cheeky hold whilst swooning the Silk from Little Acorn Silks.



So many of our brides love our Bridal boutique and it looked even more stunning with the addition of this gorgeous gown from Frances Day Bridal

We love nothing more than a talking point, the amazing backdrop behind the top table and the cake swing was certainly just that, when you have a creation as simply stunning as this you know it’s time to get in touch with Sophie at The Confetti Cakery to showcase her delicious cakes!


Whilst on the topic of something a little bit different- the doughnut wall, we may have had a WOW moment when we saw it being installed; Couples are loving the alternative options you can have here!




Saving the best till last… how about having a pizza van rock up to your evening reception? The fantastic Mr and Mrs Pickwicks were another on our list. Having already attended weddings here and with a number of future weddings already in their diary for 2018/19 they jumped at the chance of coming along and meeting you all. We know you love them as much as we do, their pizza tastes pretty good too 😉




We have an amazing outdoor space and we love it when couples want to get there guests out in the fresh woodland, wether it be with their photographer or with the help of some sort of fun entertainment in the form of our snap cab…. Yes it’s actually a photobooth in a white britsh taxi, hands up who’
s a converted fan?


**remember the taxi is exclusive to us here.


We loved having you all over for our open day and we are already planning the next….

Get Sunday 21st of January booked in to your diary!!
